SPOKANE, Wash., Oct. 19 (UPI) -- Authorities in Washington state said a moose spotted running through Spokane was chased by police, news crews and a herd of cows.
The moose was first spotted heading east on 37th Street about 10 a.m. Saturday and police caught up to it near Ferris High School nearly an hour later, KREM-TV, Spokane, reported Tuesday.
The animal was briefly cornered near the Southside Soccer Complex where hundreds of children were playing around 11:30 a.m. but it jumped into a pasture near the complex and found itself being chased by a herd of cows.
The moose escaped into a satellite communications yard, where it charged and nearly struck a KREM news camera.
The animal made its escape by barreling through the soccer complex, a neighborhood and the Manito Golf Course. Authorities said they lost track of the moose in the Manito Place neighborhood.
